The Comfort Book

As remarked by Francis Bacon, "Some books should be tasted, some devoured, but only a few should be chewed and digested thoroughly". 

Matt Haig's 𝕿𝖍𝖊 𝕮𝖔𝖒𝖋𝖔𝖗𝖙 𝕭𝖔𝖔𝖐 is undoubtedly a book that should be chewed and digested. It could be enjoyed as an elaborate royal meal with several dishes and courses... Or just stick to one chapter at a time and let the aftertaste linger. 

Very often than not, we may experience self-doubt, anxiety and uncertainties; Especially in these times of pandemic where life seems to have paused. In such times, we may wish to have someone ro listen to us. To give a gentle nudge. To remind us who we are and that the cloud will be lifted and this too shall pass. Or even generally, we would like to be reassured that we are doing alright. Trust me,  𝕿𝖍𝖊 𝕮𝖔𝖒𝖋𝖔𝖗𝖙 𝕭𝖔𝖔𝖐 will be that someone - forever! They were right when they said a book is man's best friend!

This book is a treasure. Reminds us that being true to oneself is the only way forward. And reiterates, "I am enough". 

I loved this book. I am going to carry these wise words with me all my life. Strongly recommend to all of you. Good books are always a joy!!
Rating: 5/5

Favourite Quote: "Nothing is stronger than a small hope that doesn't give up". It was difficult to just pick one!
